After her stunning defeat in the mayoral race, Toni Preckwinkle is in the unusual position of returning to two positions of major executive power – the President of the Cook County board and Chair of the Cook County Democratic Party. Weakened? Sure, but she’s got a bigger, more progressive democratic bloc on the board than ever and a couple more years atop the party. On this episode of The Daily Line’s Aldercast, we’ll talk about Preckwinkle’s priorities for the county –– criminal justice, the census, and the South Suburbs. We’ll also talk about a swirl of scandal at every level of government in Illinois, Kim Foxx, whether the Cook County Democratic Party will continue going after problematic judges, and more.
